DMC’s 2011-2012 Foundations Orientation kicks off with a bang

7 years

Dubai Men’s College started its 24th year with a flourish, as a few hundred Foundation students, some new and others returning, gathered in the college auditorium on September 4 to listen to new Director Dr. Leo Chavez welcome them.

They also started a two-week orientation program designed by Foundation faculty members.  During the orientation, students will be tasked with myriad of activities, ranging from a country project to a splash and spell activity in the college swimming pool.

The DMC Foundations Year students found the orientation program of great interest and benefit.

“I felt so good during the presentation,” said Khalid Ali, 18, a new student who plans to study Mechatronics.  “I’m happy to be at Dubai Men’s College.  I want to improve my English and Math skills.”

Thabit Hamad, 17, already could feel the strong communication lines emanating from faculty to students.  “I felt comfortable communicating with the teachers.  I felt excited during the orientation,” he said.

Dr. Chavez summed up the start of the two week program by saying: “The orientation program reflects our commitment to student success in making sure students have the tools to achieve their goals.”
